(Thoughts worth thinking about)
The top things on the list will not beg for your time
like the little things.
Right things are always shy.
Wrong things always clamor for your attention.
(Song of Solomon 2:15)
Schedule your time to do what is most important.
Beware of wrong imaginations.
(2 Corinthians 10:5)
Do not rationalize a problem away.
Deal with it honestly and openly with God and yourself.
Unsought advice is seldom followed and often resented.
God calls a man to himself
before he will call him to a place.
The sign of a spiritual christian is
not by how he feels about something,
but how obedient is he to God's word.

Avoid people who are time wasters.
Use the early morning and late evening hours.
(Early is found 86 times in the bible)
Work the hardest when you are the most alert.
Use travel time wisely.
Plan your day at its beginning.
Don't dwell on minor decisions.
(bible, famous people, sermons, etc.)
God gave us two ends:
One to sit on and one to think with.
Success depends upon which one we use most.
Heads we win, tails we lose!
Your companions are like the buttons on an elevator.
They will either take you up or they will take you down.
(Proverbs 13:20; 1 Corinthians 15:33)
A person's character is revealed
by what he does when no one is watching.
Some people complain because God put thorns on roses
while others praise him for putting roses on thorns.
The bridge you burn now
may be the one you have to cross later.
Conscience is God's built-in warning system.
Be very happy when it hurts you.
Be very worried when it doesn't.
If you do not stand for something
you will fall for anything.
Failure in people is caused more by a lack of determination than lack in talent.
A man is rich according to what he is,
not what he has.
Sometimes we are so busy adding up our troubles
that we forget to count our blessings.
The best way to forget your problems is to help someone else.
Authority makes some people grow and others just swell.
(Matthew 23:11, 12)
Be more concerned with what God thinks about you
than what others think about you.
The train of failure usually runs on the track of laziness.
When confronted with a Goliath-sized problem,
which way do you respond:
"He is too big to hit," or like david, "he is too big to miss?"
(1 Samuel 17:37)
Forget yourself for others
and others will not forget you.
It is the little things in life that determine the big things.
Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you.
Learn from other mistakes
rather than making them all yourself.
(Especially those that are spiritual)
Put others before yourself
and you will become a leader of men.
(Matthew 20:26, 27)
When things go wrong, don't go wrong with them.
You can easily determine the caliber of a person
by the amount of opposition that it takes to discourage him.
If the odds are even, where does God get the glory?
Most people spend their lives just quitting on God.
You cannot live on past victories.
What are you doing today?
You cannot get something for nothing.
The greatest work today is not done by geniuses,
but by people with determination.
Leadership is learning to give
whether or not you get anything in return.
If you give something to get something, you are not giving; you are trading.
Success is 90% work and 10% inspiration.
Do unpleasant jobs first.
Do your best.
Use your spare time wisely. Do two things at once.
Learn to encourage others.
The right words, at the right time, can work wonders.
Realize that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
(1 Corinthians 15:58)
Trust in God. (Proverbs 3:5, 6)
Go the extra mile.
God uses people who are busy. (Matthew 5:41)
Unpredictability creates insecurity.
Fear God, work hard.
Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is
like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
